Jimmy's latest EP "Thunderclap Session" has been called a "Super Solid" project with "Emotional Tone" that makes you want more. Backing Jimmy on new the new EP is Bassist Johnny Griparic. (Slash, Richie Kotzen & Walter Trout) On drums Jimmy recruited Michael Leasure (Walter Trout, Edgar Winter, Buddy Miles).  "This is a good EP, with diverse tunes and solid musicianship" says Jimmy.  

Warren began his journey in the mid 80's sitting in with many of Chicago's southside blues legends.  at the same time he fronted his own trio while performing as a sideman for many other artists.  She shared the stage with the likes of Gary Richrath (REO), Pat Travers, Buddy Guy, Lonnie Brooks, Koko Taylor, Delbert McClinton and many others.
